Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr's 'S.T.A.N.D.' Joins with Black Conservatives and Tea Party Activists to Denounce the NAACP for Racist Resolution Against Tea Party Members
July 13, 2010
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- According to prominent black minister, Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., whose organization - Staying True to America's National Destiny (STAND) - denounced the New Black Panther Party as a racist hate group, has taken aim at the NAACP for a proposed resolution accusing the Tea Party of racism. STAND is a grassroots organization dedicated to restoring America's Judeo-Christian history and values and bringing Americans together across racial and cultural lines as "One Nation Under God." Bishop Jackson says, "While I have great admiration for the historic contribution the NAACP once made toward equality and justice for black Americans, they have lost their way. Instead of seeking justice, they play racial politics and march lockstep with the far left. They were once independent. Now liberals say jump, and the NAACP says, 'How high?'"
Recently Jackson was interviewed on FOX News' "America Live" with Megyn Kelley. He called for a Congressional investigation of the Attorney General's office unwillingness to pursue action against the new Black Panther Party for intimidating white voters and black Republicans at a polling place in Philadelphia during the 2008 election. Jackson says, "The NAACP should be outraged by the New Black Panther case. Dr. King spoke out against strong arm tactics and threats of violence. STAND is a better representative of the true spirit of the civil rights movement than today's NAACP because we defend the civil rights of all people."
Jackson is joining with black conservatives and Tea Party activists to denounce the NAACP resolution. "The NAACP was silent during the hateful, racist, anti-Semitic rants of Jeremiah Wright and the New Black panther Party," says the Bishop. "Instead of defending Kenneth Gladney's right to freely express his political views as a black American, they were silent when he was viciously attacked at a Tea Party rally and called the "N" word by SEIU thugs. It seems that the NAACP is only for the advancement of liberal "colored" people. Therefore it has lost credibility as a true civil rights organization."
Jackson has asked to speak at the NAACP Convention to address the delegates before they take up a resolution against the Tea Party. Bishop Jackson supports the Tea Party and has spoken at numerous local and national Tea Party events. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School, the Pastor of a predominantly black church and has actively served the black community for over thirty years.
